Chow Rundown: Aoyama Flower Market Teahouse

The actual teahouse is located behind the flower shop. You may have to wait a few minutes in order to get in. It’s the worst kept secret “café” in Omotesando. I place café in quotation marks because they don’t actually serve coffee here.

The place itself is very laidback. Ivy lines the greenhouse beams. Glass lamps hang from the ceiling like twinkling stars. I especially liked the exposed brick wall seen from the huge window towards the back.

Aoyama Flower Market has a large variety of flowers on sale plus they also sell these cute potted plants!

FOOD RUNDOWN

Aoyama 2
Lobster Shrimp Bisque with Genovese Tagliatelle Pasta, Seasonal Salad and Baguette (¥1,620)
I like my bisque a little creamier but the flavor itself was on point. I did not care for the salad. Tasted ordinary. The Genovese Tagliatelle, I loved! Perfectly seasoned with just the right amount of pesto.

Salmon and Avocado Sandwich with Herb Crème Fraiche and Seasonal Salad (¥1,080)
My mom finished her whole plate!

Aoyama 11

French Toast topped with Edible Flowers and Assorted Fruits (¥918)
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is the BEST French Toast I have ever tasted! What is interesting is that they use baguette instead of the traditional loaf bread. I did not dare eat the flowers even if they were edible so no comment on that. But the jelly they provided with the fruits provided an extra oomph of sweetness that I extremely enjoyed!

Aoyama 10

Gâteau de Chocolat (¥756)
Rich homemade chocolate cake served with a dollop of whipped cream and berries. Perfectly moist!

Aoyama 8

Kimono (¥756)
Green tea with the hints of peach and apricot. Smells faintly of roses.

Aoyama 9

Bora Bora (¥756)
Enjoy this ultimate beach tea with the taste of strawberries, apples and oranges. I just wish it also came iced!
